Your Soul is Wintering: Rediscovering joy after baby loss

Book Author Annie Anderson
Rights Available World excl. NZ

A stunningly written memoir about navigating the grief of miscarriage. More than just a book about baby loss, however, this book is for anyone who has lost something or someone dear to them, and is learning how to open themselves up to healing and being happy again.

Deeply moving, insightful, articulate expression of the grief, loss and recovery process associated with miscarriage. Globally, it is estimated that 23 million women lose a pregnancy through miscarriage or still birth every year. However, this is not just a book for those who have experienced baby loss, but for anyone who has faced a great hardship and lost their joy. Encourages and affirms the reader to be an active participant in their own life journey. Weaves in quotes from the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Tony Robbins and Auschwitz survivor, Edith Eger. Offers a critical perspective of a society that denies women the right to grieve properly if their baby died in the first or second term of pregnancy (ie: still classified as a ‘foetus’). Advice for friends and family in how to support a loved one who has experienced baby loss.
